Colin and Nikki Vance - NikNaks

Nikki describes herself as the “artisitic” one, whereas Colin, who is originally from the boat building trade is now a Project Director of a local construction company.

This small business idea came about after searching the internet for a personalised 40th birthday gift for a family member. Realising that they were not easily obtainable, Colin and Nikki decided to combine their skills and have a go at making their own bespoke gifts from wood. They started off producing personalised painted plaques and hearts for friends but have now extended their range by making quality hardwood Celtic and Manx designs using Iroko, Oak, Mahogony and Pine.

NikNaks now offers Manx themed hardwood gifts for Weddings, Anniversaries and Christenings and they welcome personal commissions.

A selection of Celtic Designs can be found at the MostlyManx shop in Douglas. You can also visit their facebook page
